  • Will Friday be Twice as Nice for Huskies?

    With Terrence Ross already headed to Washington, can the Huskies expect his Portland (Ore.) Jefferson teammate Terrence Jones to join him?

    Both players will formally announce their college plans Friday at a 6:30 ET press conference at Portland Jefferson.

    As first reported by ZAGSBLOG Sunday night, the 6-foot-5 Ross (pictured courtesy the Seattle Times) has already opted for Washington over Kansas, Kentucky, Oregon and Oklahoma.

    “I am going to Washington because of the great relationship I have with the team and coaches. I thought it would be the best choice for me and I would fit in with the team,” Ross told ZAGSBLOG contributor Alex Kline via Facebook.

    The 6-8 Jones is coming off a recent official visit to Kansas.

    “The trip to Kansas was great. I got to see how the team interacts with each other and how it’s a family atmosphere,” Jones told Rivals.com.

    Jones told Rivals he was hosted by sophomore Tyshawn Taylor, the former St. Anthony star, and that he also spent time with freshmen Thomas Robinson and Elijah Johnson.

    “The support the players receive at Kansas is something that stands out,” Jones told Rivals.com. “Everybody knows who those guys are, and there is a lot of support. Kansas is one of my options, and they are even with the other schools.”

    Jones is also mulling Washington, Kentucky, Oklahoma, UCLA and Oregon.

    Will he and Ross end up making Friday twice as nice for the Huskies?

    “It could happen but I want him to do what’s best for him and me to do what’s best for me,” Jones said at the Jordan Brand Classic. “If that’s together then that’s good. But if it’s not then I’ll respect it.”
